At Massage Sanctuary, nationally certified massage therapist Brandon Woolard offers his clients the opportunity to relax and receive personalized massages in a soothing atmosphere. After initial consultations—complete with a box full of stress stones if customers need some preliminary unwinding—guests undress to their own comfort levels and fit between sheets, ready for calming massages. As he works, Brandon encourages his customers to speak up about comfort levels in case the heated table is too hot or the aromatherapy ostrich too pungent and squawking. Brandon soothes backs and muscles with a variety of modalities, incorporating Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, hot-stone, and aromatherapy methods into his massages. Afterward, complimentary mints and water rejuvenate the senses as customers, suspended in massage euphoria, go home, take hot baths or showers, and maintain relaxed states.

Though eyelashes are quite small, learning to apply them can be quite a big undertaking. Each aesthetician at SOHO Lashes has endured numerous hours of training through Xtreme Lashes, learning how to darken and lengthen eye fringe in a manner that is comfortable, natural looking, and safe for the eyelashes. Available in various lengths and colors, the synthetic strands are applied one by one using a lightweight, waterproof adhesive that doesn't touch the skin. And since the false lashes are bonded to the real ones, they fall out in accordance with the natural growth cycle. Depending on the desired fullness, application can take anywhere from one to two and a half hours to complete; though afterward, clients can look forward to saving time each morning since they won't need to apply mascara or perk up limp lashes with a daily pep talk.

In addition to applying lash extensions, the aestheticians enhance features with more traditional cosmetics and remove unwanted hairs with waxing services. Groups of gals can come in for bridal makeovers or to get ready for other big events, such as school dances where everyone just stands around awkwardly.

The expert eyes of the studio's beauty mavens ensure that faces possess the desired natural makeup look in special-occasion makeup sessions, which help a bride's natural beauty shine through showers of rice or an unexpected rain of cornhusks.:m]]

Sunbeams spill through the windows at MeTime Personal Saunas, making tall, green grasses sprout from the planters that line an exposed-brick wall. Down the hall, six personal saunas draw inspiration from these rays to help humans cultivate wellness. Each sauna emanates far-infrared heat, which penetrates the skin to boost circulation, jump-start the immune system, and extract toxins such as mercury and lead. By summoning sweat, the warmth may also help the body shed calories and expired skin cells. Unlike ultraviolet rays, far-infrared beams warm the body uniformly, without burning the skin. To make stress evaporate, each sauna comes with an MP3-friendly audio system, which can fill the space with the soothing sounds of string quartets, ocean waves, or beatboxing seagulls. LED lights help lift gloomy moods with a choice of seven hues, from calming turquoise to energizing red. After marinating in the therapeutic heat, sauna-goers may rehydrate with complimentary bottled water, whisk away sweat with oshibori-style towels, or peruse the spa’s selection of organic skincare and nutrition products.

All of the hair stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians at Serenity Spa strive to make clients feel comfortable and relaxed, not just by pampering them, but by putting them at ease with unpretentious service. Wielding botanically based Aveda products, the stylists can reshape tresses into a modern 'do or a scale model of Mount Rushmore. Relaxing and therapeutic massages unfurl knotted muscles, and the spa's facial and body treatments employ Pevonia skincare products and luxuriant ingredients, including pure caviar extract, African sea-salt scrubs, and masks with seaweed and chamomile. The nail technicians tidy up clients' digits by evenly trimming cuticles and shaping nails, glazing them with a fresh coat of color or a chip-resistant Axxium or Shellac gel polish.
